Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the the most common form of heart disease. CAD is caused by arteriosclerosis or "hardening of the arteries". As the arteries become blocked, the necessary blood flow, oxygen, and nutrients to the heart are reduced. Treatment for CAD includes lifestyle changes, medications, and sometimes, cardiac procedures or surgery.
Vascular disease is a class of diseases of the blood vessels in the arteries and veins. The staff at Prevail Heart Clinics of America can help identify and provide treatment for conditions such as leg pain with walking, swelling of lower extremities or skin change of the lower extremities.
Hyperlipidemia or high cholesterol (fat in the blood) can be either inherited or acquired throughout your lifetime. High levels can lead to chest pain, heart attack, stroke or peripheral vascular disease. Goal levels for good and bad cholesterol are specific to your individualized cardiovascular risks. Cardiologists at Prevail Heart Clinics of America can evaluate your risk and provide recommendations for you to manage your cholesterol through lifestyle modifications and therapies to reduce your cardiovascular risks.
An arrhythmia is a problem with the rate or rhythm of your heartbeat. It means that your heart beats too quickly, too slowly, or with an irregular pattern. An example would be Atrial Fibrillation (AF or Afib) which is an irregular and often rapid heart rate that can increase your risk of stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. Afib is a complex, clinical problem with a variety of treatment options. Our Afib team will work with each patient to develop a treatment that is individualized and appropriate for each case.
Hypertension (HTN) or high blood pressure can be present for years without symptoms and increase your risk for heart attack, stroke, atrial fibrillation and heart failure. More than 22% of the world’s population have HTN with the risk increasing significantly with age. Cardiologists at Prevail Heart Clinics of America can evaluate and help you manage high blood pressure through lifestyle modifications and therapies to reduce your cardiovascular risks.
Heart failure is a serious condition that requires medical care, but with early detection, appropriate treatment, and lifestyle changes, you can stop the progression of deterioration. Our comprehensive heart failure program and team of experts offer highly specialized, proven treatments to help patients with heart failure get back to the life they love.
There are four valves in your heart that help blood flow properly. These valves can be formed abnormally at birth or over time break down causing leakage or narrowed passageways for blood flow. At Prevail Heart Clinics of America, trained cardiologists can evaluate cardiac murmurs for valve disease clinically and with advanced imaging such as echocardiography and CT. Individualized counseling, surveillance and recommendations for innovative therapies include medicines, minimally invasive interventions and surgeries are provided to patients for care options.
Strokes are a leading cause of death. The providers at Prevail Heart Clinics of America can assess your carotid arteries, implement prevention strategy and treat blood vessels that can ultimately lead to a stroke.
